Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Why is the LCD screen white? even when pictures are being taken it also appears white. What can be the possible cause and solution for this?


Answers :

Well, check what mode you are using. If it's MANUAL, maybe you are using the wrong apperture/speed/iso settings for the light conditions. The picture is being made as you are ordering (with wrong settings), causing a too clear image getting recorded (overexposure); sometimes the overexposure is so extreme that a "all white" image appears on the screen.

Try changing the mode for APPERTURE PRIORITY, SPEED PRIORITY or PROGRAM (A, S or P respectivelly), so the camera will try to compensate the other variables for the correct exposure.

If so, don't give up using the MANUAL mode (which is the best one, in my opinion). Only try to learn a little more about exposure and camera's controls.

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple

Err 02 When i switch on the camera the EOS appears on the lcd screen other than that it is blank. After a while an error 02 appears (CF card fault). I have tried previously working cards and they all do the same. The manual says re-format the card but as the lcd screen is blank, this is not possible. The battery is fully charged. Is this a problem with the camera or the card.. My gut feeling says it's the camera.. Please help, Thanks...

Ref: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Camera. The cover plate over the LCD screen cracked (left side). So far, the LCD display itself is not affected. Is it possible to replace just the cover plate without having to install a new LCD unit? If so do you have a part number for the plate? I understand that cracking of the LCD screen is a recurring problem with the Lumix series of digital cameras and also that Panasonic has taken a hard line r.e. guarantee coverage. My camera is 2 months old.

Hi, I purchased a replacement LCD screen for my SD3500 from Rongstar DigitalInc. Since I've learned they do not have a good reputation and to make matters worse the LCD screen will not function properly. It seems to light a bit and the "touch" seems to cause camera to beep as if the touch screen were working, but no images or "scene to take" is viualized ion the screen. As I said only a faint lighting ( appears to be black as if no light coming off it) . Help! I am sure it is connected corr

Hi, I bought the Fujifilm Finepix S2500HD a week back. I have noticed a strange problem with the LCD screen or is it the sensor? In low light situations when you turn the camera on, the screen is not clear and there are disturbances in the form of blue dots across the LCD which appear like a screen refreshing phenomena. The same can be observed in the EVF also. Is there a problem with the sensor of the camera. The best way to notice this problem is by keeping your hand fully in front of the l

THE CRASH OCCURRED when I hooked up the camera to my MAC AND the Easy Share program had iniitiated. The photos appeared on the screen and as I selected them to transfer the crash warning appeared. Symbols appeared, each with a number i.e. 100_0414_1.JPG. I taken a few photos yet each symbol indicated that it did not transfer. Also, when I attempted to turn off the camera the LCD screen continuously read that one photo was being transferred. This process continued for approximately 5 minute

Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work. It turns white when I turn it on and when I take a photo with flash black lines appear all in the photo. I've tried finding a reset button, but nothing has been found. As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS

My Sony A700 works ok in the P,A,S and M modes. However when set in Auto mode the lcd shows Portrait. When in Portrait it shows Portrait. When in Landscape the lcd shows Portrait.

CRACKED SCREEN dropped my camera and when i turn it on the screen looks cracked and it white! it looks broken on the inside. I have a polaroid i830. One day i dropped it on the floor, and it doesn't work now. If i push the power button on, the power light comes on, but the screen and everything stays off. I also can't get the light to turn off unless I take out the batteries. The screen appears to have a crack. Is there any way to fix it before spending to get a new one ??

When I turn my 550 PowerShot on, I get a blank screen (black for the most part with white camera symbology around the screen, such as the flash symbol, etc). The screen works, as I can click a picture and see the photo momentarily. I can also view my saved pics. When I select the film mode, the screen looks normal.......meaning it displays a color image of what is in the lens. Have I inadvertently selected a mode which is causing this phenomenon?


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on ... Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera
